SportsLine simulated the 2019 Sentry Tournament of Champions 10,000 times, and there are some big surprises. This proprietary computer model has nailed four of the last eight majors entering the weekend and called Tiger Woods' deep run in the 2018 PGA Championship despite being a 25-1 long shot.
The model has been spot-on early in the 2018-19 PGA season. It was all over Jon Rahm (12-1) at the 2018 Hero World Challenge, projecting him as a top contender from the start. It also correctly predicted Brooks Koepka's (9-1) victory at the 2018 CJ Cup earlier this season. Anyone who has followed the model is up HUGE.
Now, it has simulated the 2019 Sentry Tournament of Champions, an event beginning in Maui, Hawaii, on Jan. 3, 2019 that is open to PGA winners from the past calendar year, and the results are in.
One huge shocker the model is calling for: Dustin Johnson, the defending champion and the Vegas favorite at 5-1, falls short in his bid to repeat. Another surprise: Cameron Champ, a 20-1 long shot, makes a serious run at the title. He has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday.
Also, the model says four additional golfers with odds of 12-1 or longer make a strong run at the title. Anyone who bets on these underdogs could hit it BIG.
So who should you jump on for the 2019 Sentry Tournament of Champions? And which huge long shots make a serious run at winning it all? ... Join SportsLine right now to see the entire projected leaderboard, and see which long shots shock the golfing world, all from the model that nailed the winner of four golf majors!
